What to Expect

Icehouse Canyon is located in a beautiful wooded stream-driven section of the forest near Mt. Baldy Village. The winding trail begins in a shady canyon passing remnants of old recreation cabins as it heads towards Ice House Canyon Saddle. 

After the halfway point, hikers will trek through a series of switchbacks lined with alpine flora and massive boulders washed down from historical floods.

Upon reaching the saddle, deep into the Cucamonga Wilderness*, hikers have several options to continue onto either Ontario Peak, Bighorn Peak, or Cucamonga Peak.

*Note: A free wilderness permit is required to hike the trail past the Cucamonga Wilderness boundary. They can be obtained at a brown box at the trailhead (Icehouse Canyon RD. Parking Lot) or at the Mt. Baldy Visitor Center (open weekends only) a quarter-mile away.
